Celebrating Silver

In 2021, St Luke’s Hospital celebrated 25 years of serving, loving and healing in the community. We place great emphasis on enhancing our continuous efforts to care holistically for patients’ physical, emotional and psychosocial well-being.

It is our mission to enrich more lives and transform community care through our services, and building awareness on staying healthy and ageing well in one’s silver years.

These are the highlights of our 25th Anniversary celebration.

About Celebrating Silver

Ageing is a natural part of life. But age, is just a number. A positive mindset and a healthy lifestyle can help us age well, and continue to live a fulfilling and meaningful life.

#GoSilverSG

#GoSilverSG is Singapore’s first-ever “Silver Hair” campaign in Singapore to inspire positive ageing and raise funds for patients at St Luke’s Hospital. The campaign ran from 1 Aug to 30 Sep 2021.

A BIG thank you to all who showed support by posting a silver hair selfie for our campaign. This simple act has helped to inspire positivity in ageing, and also raised funds for patients as corporate donors matched posts, likes and comments with donations.

Silver Jubilee

Launch of Heritage Wall

We were honoured to have Minister of State, Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth – MCCY & Ministry of Trade & Industry, Low Yen Ling, officially launch our Heritage Wall.

Representatives from St Luke’s Hospital and South West CDC also joined the launch event, unveiling the 24-metre long wall that showcases and celebrates our milestones of serving, loving and healing the community since 1996.

Ms Low took the opportunity to interact with some of our staff to find out more about their work and express her support to them as frontliners. “While the pandemic has placed additional stress on patients, their families and the team, I am encouraged by our team’s effort in adapting our services in consideration of our patients’ physical, psychosocial and emotional health”, said Dr Andrea Tan, who works in our dedicated dementia ward.

An acrylic painting was jointly created by patients, who chose their favourite colours and added their distinct mark, representing their individual endeavour to get well. Ms Low with Lee Sze-Chin, Art Therapist, who conceptualised and coordinated the painting.

At our dementia ward, Ms Low connected with some patients who were in the midst of a music therapy session, singing along cheerily to all-time classics 甜蜜蜜 and Dayung Sampan, while music therapist Isabel Tan played the guitar. Our patients were all smiles after receiving a goodie bag from our donors, handed out by Ms Low.

Silver Delights

For 25 days, our patients enjoyed special treats of gifts and goodies. We thank our generous donors for delighting our patients and giving them that extra cheer in their stay and recovery with us.

A group of St Luke’s Hospital patients each lent a splash of colour to represent their individual endeavours to recover, return home and reintegrate into the community. The medley of colours resonates with their bursting zest for life, just as St Luke’s Hospital looks forward to another 25 years of vibrancy in Serving, Loving and Healing for the community.
